Thank you very much! I didn't know this board, looks very interesting (and surprisingly cheap, on Ali).

You'll need to get an FTDI USB to TTL adapter to program them.

Hello everyone,

maybe I am the newest to this forum.  I am a hobbyist. I just started building small arduino projects and became fascinated by using XOD IDE. The great and high quality videos by Dronebot encouraged me more to peruse it. 

I have a clinical lab. With high volume of specimens and would like to build arduino controllers to some what "automate " the work flow of my lab i.e. I want to link these arduino controllers to my database and by scanning a barcode the patient  records in the data base should update automatically. Is this possible?

many thanks

Hi Ahejazi. Welcome to the forums.

This is certainly possible.  Although exactly what you will need to do this will depend on how you are storing your database and any other software associated with that database.   It also may be possible that you'll need to move up to a Raspberry Pi.  I can't say since I don't know the details of what you want to do.  But a Raspberry Pi is far more powerful than an Arduino.   A Raspberry Pi is basically equivalent to a full-size computer.   I'm certain that a Raspberry Pi will do that job.  But you may also be able to do it with an Arduino too.  Like I say, this can depend on your main data base software and program.  Sounds like a good project.  Very best wishes on your progress with it.

I am a recently retired IT person.  I have an EE degree but have been working in the computer field for decades.  I love working with electronic projects and I now have more time to do it.  I have setup some sensors using z-wave/zigbee and Smartthings for some home monitoring/automation.   I have dabbled with an Arduino and Raspbery Pi but nothing beyond experimentation to get familiar with them. I am also a licensed amateur radio operator. I just happened upon the Dronebot video on YouTube and now here I am.  I have an old defunct Roomba I might use to build a test robot. Watching the DB1 videos and was very inspired but I need to start much simpler. I love the idea of this forum and will be spending time reading posts. Thanks Bill for all your work and excellent videos.

Welcome aboard!  There is also a thread on here "For the Hams on board" so the non-hams don't have to be bothered by all of our "static."

Hello everyone, my name is Albert and I have compiled over 75 years in the course of a lifetime.

I am a retired steelmaking process engineer but I still work part time repairing projection lasers 

Home

I am also a mentor to a great bunch of high school kids who design and build competition robots

https://www.firstinspires.org/robotics/frc

https://titaniumtitans.org/

Electronics has been a hobby for me ever since I was a kid.  I had my ham license before I had my drivers license.  I was facinated by the DB1 project because we are looking for a small robot that is fully functional but can be easily carried in the back of a car to mall shows, schools etc.  Our competition robots weigh around 120 lbs. and it takes two people and a cargo van to transport them.  We could use something like DB1 for our lady mentors to take with them whem making an outreach presentation.

Best regards to all

I watched the "First" video.  Pretty awesome!  I was also very glad to see that the robot competitions were very constructive and not robots trying to destroy each other in a robotics demolition derby.   So it was very nice to see the constructive competition.  That's awesome.  I wish they had something like that back when I was in high school.

Great work!
